Carbon dating hoax
Last year, the hottest on record for the third year in a row, was about 1.1 degrees Celsius above the pre-industrial level, according to Nasa and the Met Office, boosted slightly by the natural El Nino effect.Svalbard in the Arctic has seen average winter temperatures rise by up to a staggering 11C compared to the average between 19.It is also certain that greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have increased and that human activity is responsible for this.Helpfully, atmospheric carbon dioxide resulting from fossil fuels has a different isotope signature to the gas produced naturally.The basic science behind climate change is actually quite simple.
After temperatures rise, on average it takes 800 years .In addition to thermometer records going back to the 1880s, there is a large amount of natural evidence in the form of glaciers retreating and sea ice melting to record lows, sea levels rising by 20cm, islands disappearing, animals and plants shifting their ranges and spring coming several weeks earlier.Ironically, the famously impassable Northwest Passage – which claimed the lives of numerous explorers trying to find a new trade route to China – is now so free of ice that people can take a cruise through it on a ship powered by the fossil fuels that help cause global warming.Even the UK’s leading ‘sceptic’ think tank, Nigel Lawson’s Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), agrees.Some commentators, including the GWPF, adopt a so-called ‘lukewarmist’ position, arguing that climate change will not be too bad so there is no need to stop using fossil fuels.
Carbon may still influence temperatures, but these ice cores are neutral on that. Some other factor is more important than carbon dioxide, or carbon’s role is minor.
